Sudan, spring 2011. Mona is a well-off Muslim from the North, Julia, a young Christian mother, is from the South. Nothing predestined these two women to meet in such a divided country. However, it is the story of their improbable friendship that is told here, on the eve of the partition of the country.
The viewer is immersed in ordinary violence, in the heart of a nation trapped in an inextricable conflict. Through the tragic story of these two heroines, the director dares to portray “the racism practiced for decades by most Arabs in the North, within the government and the population. » “By writing this film,” he explained, “I’m trying to get rid of this inherited racism. I am driven by a feeling of guilt and a deep desire for reconciliation. »
Entering a lasting peace process: that’s all we wish for the characters of this moving fiction and for the Sudanese citizens of today.
